Forex Analysis: Staying Short AUDUSD, Long USDJPY

Forex Analysis: Staying Short AUDUSD, Long USDJPY

David Rodriguez, Head of Product

I'm now long the US Dollar (ticker: USDOLLAR) against the Japanese Yen and Australian Dollar, and I believe that the USD stands to strengthen further in the week ahead.

I think the Dow Jones FXCM Dollar Index breaks above the key 10000 mark, and our crowd sentiment-based strategies have likewise gone long USD verus the Euro and Australian Dollar.

For the AUDUSD, I'm short from $1.0380 with a stop above key congestion highs at $1.0450. First targets are the $1.0300 mark, but I'll likely trail my stop instead of taking full profits on said position.

The position nearly got stopped out in the overnight AUDUSD bounce, but I'm encouraged by the fact that the AUDUSD has yet to break highs.

The USDJPY long position will remain in force as long as we stay above September lows on a weekly closing basis.
